Lucy Pursehouse, Dr

Senior Lecturer at University of Wolverhampton

Lucy Pursehouse is a senior lecturer in the Institute of Health at the University of Wolverhampton and senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Prior to moving into academia Lucy worked as a registered nurse for many years in a variety of roles across the health and social care sector. Her research interests focus on qualitative methodologies and in particular narrative approaches to deepening an understanding of the lived experience of mental health stigma. This formed the basis of her doctoral studies, which culminated in an autoethnographical inquiry that linked to teaching practice through the consideration of pedagogies aimed at opening opportunities for transformative learning spaces.
